Frankly just isn't that mega money in the city.

Great to live in when you're 21 and want a bevy and a shag every weekend, but what do you do if you're a millionaire here. There's about 10 high end shops and that's probably 5 too many.

Really? I have this impression of Liverpool being pretty modern & cosmopolitan. Isn't it England's 2nd-largest city?

Itís modern and cosmopolitan in parts but Manchester is streets ahead of it.

Itís not really a place for the rich people to live. They all go to places like Cheshire  and Manchester.

Still so foreign to me, no pun intended. I've only visited London (3x), and only been to Oxfordshire twice for a client. Outside of the UK, I've only been to Germany, and you know they have a bunch of big, modern cities too. But nowhere else. Obviously the U.S. is huge by comparison, but most individual states have a big, cosmopolitan city if not more than 1.

I thought most players in the North West lived in the Manchester/Cheshire area anyway?

I don't think I'd live in the city I played in.

for the NYC-area sports teams, the younger players love to live right in Manhattan, but the family-types tend to move to the wealthy suburbs (northern NJ, southern Westchester County/Connecticut, western Long Island) to live in gated mansions.

Chicago kinda reminded me of Liverpool.

People who move here tend to love it, and it is a beautiful city with lots going for it, but it's not made for rich people really.

Quite a white city too.

well that ain't Chicago lol

I think we're missing a bit in translation. Even reading the English version I'm not sure why people are offended. His use of the word sad is clearly not meant to be perjorative. He says it's going well and he's acclimatising. It's, what, 4 paragraphs to sum up how he's doing? I think we can cut him some slack given the change in environment, language, etc.

Liverpool is a wonderful city though!

It's 2019, the bar for outrage is low indeed.

Sidibe is quite a bit better than Coleman.  Marco has several difficult decisions to make, but this ain't one of 'em.

Basically just the striker / 3 attacking mids really, right? With injuries, I don't think he has much of a decision to make around the 2 holding/defensive mids; it'll be Schneiderlin & Davies.
